LightUp Collective

The first #LightUp event, run by Jessica Mallard and Zuzanna Niska, aimed to #LightUp Fallowfield from the dark reality of not feeling safe to walk alone.

Emulating the Christmas lights switch-on that happens every year in towns up and down the country, the event highlighted the extent of residents' fears, and opened a dialogue between the community and authorities. Local MP's, police, and university union officers were present and a network for change was created at a post-event workshop.
